September CAS Mix Up Reminder 2019

We’re half way through the month at the CAS Mix Up Challenge! The theme is INCHIES, we’re working on tiny little tiles to compliment any and every card. There’s so much inspiration to be found on the blog, videos, creative design team, along with our special guest, Stephanie (my Ink well)!

For this simple card I wanted to used an old stamp set from Technique Tuesday called Chickadees. On a thick card stock inchie, I stamped the smallest of the birds and heat embossed three times. I then stamped the other two onto my card base. All three were watercoloured in cobalt and rose madder pigments. I also added some cobalt blue to ground the chicks. Iridescent medium was added to the surface of the inchie and the sides were painted with cobalt blue and then sealed with clear EP to avoid any transfer once gluing it to my card base.

I hope you’ll join us in our gallery for this simple challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by,

  2. This is adorable Joanna! I LOVE this image and it’s so clever that you made the small chick into an inchie. I LOVE the gorgoeus mix of colours of ink along with the gold embossing. This has been a really fun challenge – – – thanks Joanna! xx

  3. What a cute inchie card, Joanna! Love the unique design. The colors of the birds are so pretty and your iridescent medium covered and clear heat-embossed tile is eye-catching. The shimmer from the tile must be gorgeous in real life. Thanks for hosting this fun challenge this month!
